Ohio State football: Johnston wins Big Ten Special Teams honor

Quarterback Braxton Miller wasn’t the only Ohio State football player to win Big Ten Conference honors over the weekend.

The conference announced Monday that Ohio State freshman punter Cameron Johnston earned Special Teams Player of the Week honors in the Buckeyes’ 31-24 win against visiting Wisconsin.

The Australian native nailed five punts inside Wisconsin’s 10-yard line and punted all six of his punts inside the Badgers’ 20-yard line.

This is Johnston’s first Special Teams Player of the Week acknowledgement, and the first Ohio State player to be honored for a special teams effort since Corey Brown on Nov. 19, 2012.

No. 4 Ohio State (5-0) visits No. 16 Northwestern (4-0) at 8 p.m. Saturday at Ryan Field in Evanston. ESPN College GameDay will also originate and film from Evanston.
